Your Business is Food

Our free Your Business is Food program is designed to help businesses waste less food and improve profits.

Your Business is Food provides business owners, managers and staff with information and resources to help reduce the amount of food thrown away. Participants will receive support from the NSW EPA and a free Your Business is Food Toolkit (680KB PDF) with handy resources such as stickers, posters, and coasters to engage staff and customers and help improve existing attitudes and behaviors.

A simple food waste review will be conducted to work out where food is being wasted. Businesses will learn how much wastage is occurring during preparation, storage, or from customers’ plates. and choose a number of appropriate actions to reduce food waste. 

After six weeks, a follow-up review is required to measure how much the business has reduced food waste by implementing smart initiatives and promoting its achievements to staff and customers. 

The following organisations have successfully completed the Your Business is Food Program:
